In my opinion, yes they are real. My mom used to live in a Haunted House in Philadelphia that you could here strange noises and hear dishes washing....the dishes were still there though...I believe in them
the house I used to live in a lot of little things happened but could easily be explained I suppose..but the biggest thing that made me truly wonder was my daughter cried a lot for the first year of her life ...nobody could hold her but me. the day we moved she did a complete 180. it was freaky the difference in her.
Ghosts are one of those things where you either believe in them or you don't. I like to keep an open mind, but I've never seen one despite the fact that everyone everywhere claims they've seen them. With all the "i saw one with my own eyes" stories floating around, you'd think we all would have seen a ghost at some point. So, until I see one myself, im kind of on the fence. Maybe they're real, maybe they're just a made up story to comfort people so they'll feel like there really is some kind of life after death. Who knows.
The answer to this question depends on what precisely is meant by the term "ghosts." If the term means "spirit beings," the answer is a qualified "yes." If the term means "spirits of people who have died," the answer is "no." The Bible makes it abundantly clear that there are spirit beings, both good and evil. But the Bible negates the idea that the spirits of deceased human beings can remain on earth and "haunt" the living. Demons masquerade as "angels of light" and as "servants of righteousness." Appearing as a "ghost" and impersonating a deceased human being definitely seem to be within the power and abilities that demons possess.They will do anything within their power to deceive people, to lead people away from God.
Ghosts as spirits of the dead are not real. The Bible clearly states that when a person dies, they return to dust, and are not conscious of anything at all. However, the devil and demons are real, wicked spirit creatures. They transform themselves into angels of light to keep people in spiritual darkness through fear and superstitions.
Given our society's current interest in "supernatural" phenomena, this is an important question. Some people reject the idea of ghosts as crazy or superstitious, putting them on the same level as werewolves, vampires, or extraterrestrials. But let's take a look at what Catholic teaching has to say on the matter. Before we can ask whether ghosts exist, we need to be clear on what we're talking about. A "ghost," according to the definition found in Webster's New Collegiate dictionary, is a "the soul of a dead person, a disembodied human spirit." So a ghost is NOT an angel or a demon; rather, it is that part of a human being. - the soul or spirit - which is separated from the body at death. So everyone now in heaven, hell, or purgatory could be called a "ghost," and this will be the case until the Last Judgment, when our souls will be reunited with our bodies. In this sense, we as Catholics affirm that "ghosts" exist. (My answer continues in the comments)
Satan has deceived many people by teaching that the dead become spirits that can communicate with them. The Bible, however, says that the dead can do nothing at all. (Ecclesiastes 9:5) But demons often deceive people by imitating the voice of dead loved ones. (Isaiah 8:19) Demons mislead others through spirit mediums, fortune-tellers, and practicers of divination and astrology. God’s Word warns us to avoid all such practices. So we should discard anything in our possession that is related to the demons and the occult.—Read Deuteronomy 18:10, 11; Acts 19:19. By means of apparitions, voices, and crafty actions, the demons deceive people into believing that the living can communicate with the dead. Moreover, this clever deception tends to give credence to the lie that a soul survives the death of the body. However, the Bible plainly states: “The dead are conscious of nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6) Having ‘gone down into silence,’ they are unable even to praise God.—Psalm 115:17.
Yes, ghosts exist, but we cannot see them. In the bible Jesus is mistaken for a ghost by his disciples. He explained what a ghost is, therefore proving their existence-nothing more. (Luke 24:38-40-38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”)
40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet.
